Alan Dunlop reveals Celtic crossing concept image

Comment

You guys know your stuff and the locations, distances, geology involved. The image looks like one lifted from any of the long crossings of the last 100 years. How about something more radical? Suspended tubes? Maglev? Tunnels? 250 mph? 500 mph? It will join 2 of the great engineering countries of the world, surrounded by Britain, the Commonwealth and Europe. For capital as well as skilled labour. We designed and then built the Channel Tunnel in 6 years. Then the government and British Rail took forever to link it to London, undermining it’s governance and profitability. Are the Scottish and Irish governments and the rail networks ready this time? Unfortunately Alistair Morton is no longer with us, but the rest of the team are in touch, and can hand on the torch with advice. Paul Finch has my contact details, and I will do the rest. We’ll talk about honouraria later?!
